As we work to limit the spread of Coronavirus, and protect the health and safety of our co-workers, families and residents, we've all had to adapt to different ways of communication, that being less face-to-face and more over-the-phone and email.  At this time, out of an abundance of caution, we are not permitting foot traffic into the Township complex, in compliance with the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) social distancing guidelines, which is an essential part of prevention.  Although we hate to limit resident contact, we realize this is what needs to happen for everyone's protection, and to avoid the spread of the disease.  This being said, we want to assure everyone that we will be accessible via e-mail and telephone.

Thanks for visiting!
